Reviews

This is a great introductory trail to Garden of the Gods. It is paved all the way around and begins at the largest parking area. I saw a surprising amount of wildlife on this trail including a rattlesnake, multiple mule deer, and multiple different bird species. I would recommend taking the Upper Trail detour, it is NOT paved, but it provides even better views of the central garden and downtown Manitou.
